Description

One of the keys to a successful business is self-promotion, and an effective and inexpensive way of promoting your business is through the publication of non-fiction articles. Whether you want to promote a business, a product or service or launch a new career, this book will show how to write and publish articles in trade journals, newsletters, blogs or other media – quickly and easily.

You don’t have to be a great writer or have unlimited time to become a prolific writer of material in your particular area of expertise, and to obtain exposure that establishes credibility for you and your products and services.

Aimed primarily at public speakers, trainers, consultants, and other professionals and entrepreneurs, this book will help those who would like to earn an income writing professionally as well.
